Every Saturday The Propagator (click on link) invites us to share six items of interest from our gardens. Hurricane Dorian passed within 100 miles of my garden this week and we came through the storm unscathed. Physically, unscathed – mentally I was scathed. I did bring a few things inside before the winds howled by. Above, Papayas nearly ripe on the tree. I picked the Papayas and left them on the counter to ripen.
This is a fungus on a Norfolk Island Pine stump, the tree was removed because they tend to topple in high winds.
A Gulf Fritillary butterfly on potted Zinnias.
New growth on a Miniature Pineapple.
Flower of a Neoregelia Bromeliad.
The Cattleya Orchids flowered. Thinking the flowers were too delicate for the winds, I cut them and brought them inside. They grow right outside my Living Room window and I usually leave them as they last longer on the plant.
Happy Gardening on Saturday!
